I was very disappointed with Saturday's game in Cardiff - it was a pretty low-quality encounter.
Having said that, it was probably the most one-sided 15-15 I've ever seen at half-time. Wales had countless chances and gifted Italy two tries. We should have been comfortably ahead at the break.
You could sense there was a fragile confidence about Wales - in the second half we really dipped and Italy were in charge for large chunks. It was a pretty desperate performance at times by Wales.
We were the home team and should have been dominant, but really didn't control the game.
It was pretty rudderless - it became a free-for-all where everybody was trying anything. Someone needed to take charge.
It's one thing to have a free-flowing, high tempo game, but we were just so unstructured.
When you've got a world-class outside-half in Stephen Jones, you've got to allow him to have the responsibility to take charge.
The loss of Dwayne Peel for the rest of the championship is a huge blow - he's probably the best scrum-half in the world at the moment.
We created opportunities but couldn't take advantage. We weren't able to build upon our breaks.
So many tries last season we scored from 40 yards plus, because we were able to maintain the movement.
We were unable to do that against Italy because we made so many unforced errors. We simply can't afford to do that at this level.
With due respect to Italy, they don't have the pace and the ability in the backs, but if we make that amount of errors against France next weekend they will punish us.
Italy were well worth their point. The Ezio Galon try was questionable but they deserved it. If Ramiro Pez had kicked his goals they might even have snuck it.
They have shown a big improvement this year. Their first away point is a historic moment for them and one they can be justifiably proud of.
Looking ahead to Saturday, France - like Wales - are another team whose confidence has been rather fragile recently, but they will obviously be buoyant after their 31-6 triumph over England.
If they had lost Sunday's game the pressure would really have been on Bernard Laporte and his team.
They have been a big disappointment this year. They were a lot of people's overwhelming favourites for the RBS 6 Nations title and haven't delivered consistently.
But, having beaten England, if they win next week the championship is theirs.
That's the beauty of the tournament. Going into the last weekend, any one of three teams can take the title. It's not good for the blood pressure of the various supporters but it's great for the tournament!
